Julius has consistently shared his love for his wife in many ways on social media. Mantwa, on the other hand, is much more private and is reportedly an accountant.


The couple celebrated their seven-year anniversary on 27 December 2021. Julius thanked his family and friends for helping make their relationship solid.

“Today we are celebrating seven years as a married couple. The boys’ mother is steering the ship, and we are her passengers.

“Love you my babe, exciting seven years, and we are still going strong because our friends and family are supportive,” he wrote on Instagram.

The politician knows how to celebrate his wife during big moments or celebrations. This was no different on the most romantic time of the year – Valentines Day.

On 14 February 2022, he shared pictures of their romantic dinner date, which may have been in the comfort of their home.


Julius writes heartful messages honouring his wife every year. Mantwa celebrated her birthday on 29 January and Julius wished her a very special day.

“You are extraordinary to the boys and me. I will, on behalf of all four of us, make sure you have a lovely day. Happy birthday to the love of my life, and a good mother of the boys. Love you too much,” he wrote last week.
